Sarah Jessica Parker Belongs at Vogue, and These 10 Outfits Prove It

All everyone was talking about last week? Rumors that Sarah Jessica Parker was set to take over famed fashion editor Anna Wintour's spot at Vogue when the British powerhouse retired. Sadly, the newly minted shoe designer (you may know her as Carrie Bradshaw) has shut down the talk of a takeover, but it doesn't mean we can't dream of a day when Parker would run the world's biggest fashion magazine. But aside from playing a Vogue writer on Sex and the City and a sometimes-clueless-but-always-loveable Vogue editor on Glee, what could ever qualify Parker for this highly covetable and majorly influential role? The fact that she’s a total style icon, of course. Don’t believe us? These 10 outfits prove that SJP is fit for the role of EIC (as far as fashion goes).

The fur. The gloves. The snakeskin! SJP can pack a major fashion punch all into one outfit, as only the best editors do.

This hat screams English royalty — practically a new requirement for the Vogue EIC spot. And we can totally see Parker sitting in the front row at fashion week wearing one of these babies, much to the second-row guests’ chagrin.

Parker’s leather-jacket-over-girly-gown outfit proves she knows how to perfectly balance hard and soft — a trait she would need to keep the underlings at Vogue in line.
